Emphasis will be on a thorough learning of the fundamentals of Iyengar yoga.

Monday 6:30 - 8:00 PM
$125 ($135 if paid online)

The fundamentals of Iyengar Yoga in standing and sitting postures, including beginning backbends, balancings and simple inversion postures such as shoulderstand. (Headstand is not taught.) New students can enroll in this class and students with some experience are welcome in this class as well. Students who wish to continue their studies without going on to the more difficult postures may do so at this level. Basic pranayama is taught. The yoga sutras are introduced. $125 ($135 if paid online)

For students who are well practiced in Asana I postures or have taken yoga, this class builds on the foundation established in beginning yoga. Students intensify their work on poses already learned while adding more intermediate level poses, including headstand. Understanding of fundamentals is deepened; students are encouraged to work more intensely. Pranayama is introduced. The yoga sutras are introduced. $125 ($135 if paid online)

Students are challenged to work with more subtle, detailed attention to the mind and body. Building on previously learned poses, understanding of fundamentals is deepened as beginning (Asana I) and Asana II poses are consolidated. New Poses are added according to the ability of the students in the class. Inversion variations are taught in both headstand and shoulderstand. This class includes continuing work on backbends, forward bends and twists. Pranayama is taught and we continue our exploration of the yoga sutras.

To attend this class the student’s independent practice should be well-established, including thorough familiarity with all standing poses and an ability to hold a headstand for five minutes and a shoulderstand for five to ten minutes, as well as do some form of independent backbends. $125 ($135 if paid online)
